Enjoying Melbourne, Discover A Whole New World Of Fun

Aug 18, 2007
Melbourne offers a unique holiday experience for families. Visit during the spring or summer season and discover a whole new world of fun here.

1. Be a young Einstein
Melbourne Museum is one of the world's first for the internet age and is interactive, innovative and fun! Walk through a living Forest Gallery growing right inside the museum building. Come face to face with live bugs that will amaze, inspire and terrify in its fantastic new exhibition Bugs Alive! Be a kid - big or small in the fun-filled Children's Museum.

2. Strike it rich!
Step back in time to the gold rush era at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat. For a bit of adventure, go down the Red Hill Mine and experience the life of the miners in their pursuit of gold. A unique fun adventure and who knows, maybe you just find your nest of gold nuggets. Worth a trip for old and young, fund for the whole family

3. Ride a steam train
Take a nostalgic ride on the Puffing Billy - the world's oldest steam train - as it winds its way through the verdant Dandenong Ranges. A train ride as our grand and great grand parents did

4. Be a farmhand for a day
At Warrook Cattle Farm, kids can try their hand at milking and feeding the lambs and calves. The scrumptious Aussie BBQ is a must.

5. "Stimulate" your senses
Hours of entertainment await you at A Maze 'N Things down in Phillip Island where you can explore the range of mind-boggling activities. Take a trip to "Puzzle Island", where you will find a new dimension of optical illusions.

6. Meet the friendly "locals"
Don't miss the spectacular parade of the little penguins as they waddle across the beach to their burrows on Phillip Island each night. Enjoy close-up views of up to 16,000 fur seals sun-basking in their natural habitat at The Nobbies and koalas cuddling amongst the towering gum trees at Koala Conservation Centre.

7. Pick your own berries
A simply delicious experience awaits you at one of Australia's largest strawberry producers, Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm in Mornington Peninsula. Indulge in delectable ways including fresh strawberries with strawberry jam with scones and cream. Wander through the strawberry fields and pick your own fresh berries when in season between November till end April.

8. Swim with the dolphins and seals
Experience the thrill and excitement of interacting with the resident Port Phillip Bay seals and dolphins, off the coast of Sorrento in Mornington Peninsula. On board the fully equipped 70-foot vessel, "Moonraker", you will have the opportunity to see these creatures in their natural environment.
